Climate change (in particular, increased mean sea surface temperature) is correlated with several significant changes in behavior among colonial seabirds on Protection Island National Wildlife Refuge. These include increased egg cannibalism, changes in reproductive timing, and breeding season length. We’ve derived and analyzed a suite of proof-of-concept models to test various hypothesized mechanisms offered to explain these observed behavioral changes.

We formulate a mathematical version of the conventional model
of maintenance of silencing in S. cerevisiae and analyze the conditions
for bistability as well as for formation of stationary boundaries.
Although the model is perhaps too simple, the structure of the
bifurcation diagram, describing parameter regions with different kinds
of qualitative behavior, is likely to be more robust. We can place some
of the known mutants in different regions of this diagram. One
